I served aboard the USS Long Beach CGN9 the same time Jim did. I was USN and he USMC but we still got along great! We in the last couple years connected again by email. So sorry to Jim's family for his loss.

For nearly 10 years me and Jim shared are families, dreams and sports almost daily. He was a special friend who I will miss for the rest of my life. Diana thanks for sharing him with all of us. My prayers are with you and your family.

Diana, I'm so sorry to hear about JIm. I hadn't seen him since a class reunion, but he was the kind of person who made it clear he cared. May your memories of your many years together sustain you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I'm so sad for Jimmy's Family and their loss. Jimmy was a great friend to me growing up in Picktown. I have so many great memories of our winning in little league baseball and football. I won't forget Jimmy and Jeff Moore coming to visit me in London after moving in the 7th grade. Jimmy was fearless doing a backflip off our pool's diving board! Well Done Jim, what a great life in such a short time! Rest in peace brother, God Bless! Friends Forever, Shawn Silcott, Blacklick, OH
